Special B - Dingemans (1 lb)
Special B - Dingemans (1 lb)
From the land where brewing takes on a religious devotion. Special B is the darkest of the Belgian caramel malts, and oh how special it is. It has a unique aroma and flavour that is very complex. It imparts a heavy, dark caramel taste with more subtle notes of burnt sugar, raisin, and dark dried fruits such as cherries and plums. It can also deliver some of the softer roasty notes of a chocolate or black malt but without the astringency or bitterness. Special B will produce a deep brown colour with ruddy highlights and add body and foam stability like all caramel malts.

Special B - Dingemans (1 lb)

Special B by Dingemans is just the malt to add that dark caramel twist to a Dark Belgian Ale or make a Porter more flavourful. This dark caramel malt has been taken through a proprietary double drying process, which lends it a deep amber to dark brown colour, yet without making it roasted. As a result, the beer is imbued with a very complex dark caramel flavour with hints of raisins, but doesn’t get the roasted bitterness like in case of Using Chocolate or Black malt. Special B will be an excellent addition to the grain bill when brewing a complex, rich, dark beer of any style. Typically added in rates of up to 10% of the grist.
